The Smoky Cloud

The Smoky Cloud short poem

Photo by aflaa

The black smoky cloud
Floating in the air
Was ready to spread its wings to the world.
I looked up to see its black strong wings.
Part by part , section by section
It floated away and re-joined slowly.
It seemed an Eagle spreading its wings above my head.
The sight was interesting but scary
Again and again I looked up with scary eyes
To my surprise –
I heard a roaring sound.
It was a thunder with all its mighty voice.
In a minute , a drop of water fell on my head.
Drop by drop water fell on my body too.
I was fully drenched.
I felt sympathy for my strong Eagle-
For shedding tears.
The water drops whispered in my ears-
Every strong body contains a melting heart within.
How true it is ! a smile spread on my lips.

Dark Cloud

Dark Cloud prose poem

Dark cloud looming. Moving slowly. But it’s there. Creeping in front of the sun’s path, dimming the light, inch by inch. Will it settle? Will it stay? Will it slide on by and keep on it’s way? Is there rain
